The superstitious citizens of a small European village believe vampirism is to blame for the increasing discovery of corpses drained of blood. Meanwhile, the sinister Dr. von Niemann (Atwill) toils in his laboratory to sustain the life of the artificial being he has created (it looks suspiciously like a loofa sponge oxygenating in an aquarium). Goofy fun, UCLA's restoration of The Vampire Bat recreates the sensational Gustav Brock color sequence.
